October- Person, Place & Thing

boppythedonkey01-optPerson– Our closest neighbor is this guy Boppy. He’s loud and dominates most of our conversations. And his habit of smacking with his mouth open is surprising, especially if you’re not used to it. But I have to admit Boppy does a great job wiping his trough clean. No leftovers with him!

littlehouseconstruction-optPlace- Friends took me to see the construction of a small cabin. Amazing how every inch of space is used.

antiquequilt0999-optThing- Quilts have become my latest decorating obsession for our farmhouse.
